Rebecca grew up traveling and having foreign students in her family’s household. By natural extension, she was drawn to a larger world beyond her doorstep. These influences led to the travel industry as her second career more than six years ago, with a specialization in Central European destinations.
“When traveling, sit in a café or a park, and grab lunch from a local boulangerie or grocery. Explore the side streets. Learn to say hello, please, and thank you in the language of the country you are visiting. Immerse yourself. Wander.”

I’m incredibly fortunate to have recently enjoyed a trip through Burgundy aboard Belmond Afloat’s newest luxury barge, the Lilas. The boat is beautifully appointed and with only four cabins, eight passengers and six crew members, wonderfully intimate. Sailing from Dijon to Saint-Léger, I took excursions to the iconic Hôtel-Dieu in Beaune and the 12th-century Château de Rully in Burgundy, had a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant, and visited the vineyards of the historic Clos de Vougeot for a wine tasting. While cruising, I relaxed on deck, enjoyed the picturesque scenery and even took the occasional dip in the barge's small pool. I can’t recommend this magnificent trip enough!
